a what consorts with its honor." LEAVES NOTE NAMING A GIRL AND KILLS HIMSELF IN HOTEL Man, Supposed to Have Been George Keim of Belleville, Takes Life in St. Louis. A man about 28 years old who, from letters found near his body, appeared to have been George Keim of Belleville, killed himself in a room at the Hotel Jack, 305 Lucas avenue, last night. In one letter he said that he had spent all his money on women and in wine rooms. One letter was addressed to Mrs Augusta Keim, 413 East C street. Belleville, to whom he referred as his mother. In this he said he was without funds and intended to kill himself. He mentioned the name of a girl, who, he said, was largely responsible for his act. A bank book showed that in March he had $400 on deposit in the First National Bank of Belleville. The man registered at the hotel under the name of J. J. Cross. A bottle which had contained poison was near his body.
